Mplayerplug-in and Quicktime cause Firefox to segfault

I can't remember quite when the mplayerplug-in started to kill firefox when playing Quicktime movies (doesn't affect WMV, by the way). They haven't updated the plugin for ages, so I suspect either a firefox update, new Quicktime codecs or some general SuSE 11.1-ness. Setting full debug in /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf didn't help, as it crashed before generating a single line of debugging output.
Quick fix: switched to gecko-mediaplayer, which is also a mplayer front end, according to its YaST description still under heavy development, but seems to run stable enough for now.
